ARTIST STATEMENT ? I am currently pursuing architectural design incorporating lines, planes, and solid geometric objects identifiable in our everyday interaction in society. These entities are directly applied to both AutoCAD and freehand sketches to create well balanced three dimensional abstract representations. The application of color is second nature to the artwork. All designs are conceived with a universal appeal. I believe in a strong optical movement with a third dimensional image that forces the viewer to interact with the piece on an intellectual level. ? A fusion between line directions and solid shapes is critical during the interaction between me and the work. This interaction of balance plays an important role in the formation of the overall sculptural form utilizing the elements of design and adhering to the rule that form follows function. The work is planned to be as simple as possible with complexities to challenge myself and the viewer. ? I believe art is an innocence that surrenders to nature's reality and resolves its own identity by abstraction.
